We're evolving tech learning at the library

Throughout 2015, we've been listening and learning more about how you learn about technology at the library. As a result, we're working now to make our tech learning even better. Later this fall, the library will debut new ways for adults to learn and explore technology. These new opportunities will include:

  • Workshops for hands-on discovery with new tools
  • Tech Clubs for fun group and social learning experiences
  • Learning Labs for one-on-one assistance

As a result:

  • No in-person computer classes are currently scheduled at any library location for August.
  • A few new offerings are listed for September in the sidebar on this page.
  • Digital learning, including anytime access to online resources such as Lynda.com, remains available with a library account number and PIN. 
  • Any questions, please let us know. Contact us now.
